Breede River Rafting Day Trip


Xama Adventures, an adventure travel specialist based in the beautiful city of Cape Town, offers a river rafting trail on the majestic Breede River, just 24kms from the old-world country town of Swellendam.  This trail offers a fantastic opportunity to escape city life for the weekend or en-route with your friends, and really is a must do!  Our private camp is wonderfully green and lush and overlooks the Breede River, whilst the ablution blocks are spotless and have piping hot water. This is where we meet for our day trips in the Swellendam area.

Please note!!!

We don’t allow any glass bottles on the water so decant into plastic containers or bring cans. We recommend that you arrive with your drinks cold as we operate in remote areas, and bring at least 2 x 1L bottles of drinking water as the river water is not good to drink.  Bring ice and your cooler box!!!


Day 1:   Swellendam Rafting Day Trip

Upon arrival (by way of own transport), you are greeted by the river crew and shown around the camp, after which you get the chance to get ready and enjoy some tea and coffee while indemnities are signed before we embark to our put in point.

On arrival at the put in point we have a safety briefing before getting into our 2 man inflatable rafts and spend the day paddling, negotiating rapids, enjoying the sunshine and the lovely landscape.  We stop for lunch on a sand bar and hit the water again, arriving back at base camp at approximately 15h30.  From this point on, you can either sit around and relax for a bit, or pack up camp and head home (or stay another day or two at base camp, at an additional cost!)
